Book ReviewI love this book! I first discovered it as an audiobook because it is read by Lin Manuel Miranda of Hamilton fame. His reading was excellent, but when my audiobook was suddenly digitally returned the library at the biggest cliffhanger ever, I was over the moon to find this title at Leatherby.
The protagonist is Ari Mendoza, a 15 year old boy in El Paso trying to make sense of his world. He meets Dante, and the story follows the two of them figuring out who they are in a world that is mysterious, but sometimes unkind.  This book is achingly beautiful. I loved the characters so much that after I finished the book, I didn't want to read anything else - so I read it a second time.
